A2 Police Task Force - Demand Power to Compel Records from AAPD

Wed, Jul 25, 2018 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm


The next Ann Arbor Police Task Force meeting will be on Wednesday, July 25th at 7:00PM at CTN.

This meeting will be recorded.
This meeting will have police present.
This meeting will have city administrators present, including the city administrator and city attorney.

The Police Task Force was created by Ann Arbor City Council after years of community organizing for accountability following the killing of Aura Rain Rosser by AAPD in 2014. At this meeting the Task Force will be discussing a draft of the policy that will become a police review board or commission. You can see this document on the Ann Arbor Police Task Force facebook page.

**At the end of the last meeting, on 7/12/2018, the Task Force began to talk about what powers the Commission will have to compel both information for investigations and Officers to be interviewed, in some cases this is called "subpoena power" in other cases it may be a legal mandate. The Task Force template does not include any powers for the Commission to ensure that the Ann Arbor Police Department will cooperate with investigations.

Before next meeting, we are asking that Ann Arborites and anyone who interacts with AAPD e-mail the Task Force (A2PoliceTaskForce@a2gov.org) and argue in favor of the Commission having the power to compel documents and officers to cooperate with investigations, should the need arise.

We will post more information about their arguments against and the City Attorney's legal advice soon.
